PayNearMe Helps NYC Residents and Visitors Pay Parking Tickets with Cash
We are thrilled to share the news of our partnership with the New York City Department of Finance that enables New York City drivers to pay for parking tickets with cash at 7-Eleven locations nationwide, including over 100 7-Eleven locations in all five boroughs, many of which are open 24/7.
“No one likes paying parking tickets, but PayNearMe makes it convenient for those who prefer to resolve their debt by paying cash,” said Jacques Jiha, NYC Department of Finance Commissioner. “We are pleased to offer this service as an additional payment option for New York City drivers, as it is in line with our consistent efforts to enhance customer service.”
In 2016, there were more than 230,000 cash transactions with the New York City Department of Finance. This represents hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue for the city, and is also a significant inconvenience for New Yorkers, visitors, and the Department of Finance as they have long grappled with the inconvenience of paying and processing cash payments.
“PayNearMe looks forward to working with the City of New York to offer new cash payment alternatives,” said Mike Kaplan, Senior Vice President of Merchant Processing. “With a significant number of payment locations, people can pay their fines anytime, day or night. It also removes the strain from city offices and automates the payment process so that payments post on time and money can be put back to work.”
